Birth and Postpartum Terms & Liability Statement
By signing the contract/ agreement for services you acknowledge that you have read and agree to these Terms and Conditions and the refund policy found here.
I am not a medical professional and cannot provide medical advice but feel free to contact me and if it is out of my scope then I will refer out. I do not perform any clinical tasks or make any medical decisions that client and their health care provider may make during client’s pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Doula will not speak for client to medical staff, but will discuss concerns with client and provide information to help client make decisions before and during labor. Client understands doula is not responsible for clinical outcomes.
Due to current confidentiality regulations all doulas should have a signed release form from their client before taking any notes about them, their labor, birth or postpartum. The best way to be fully compliant would be to get this release signature at the first prenatal visit, or upon first meeting and joining the client. Clients should receive a copy of the form they signed, and the doula should have her copy with her at all times to be able to show that she is indeed complying with the confidentiality regulations if questioned. Confidentiality of medical and personal information obtained during the course of the doula’s work is of the utmost importance. Failure to comply with these confidentiality regulations could result in penalties.
By signing up for services you agree to give permission, for Sarah with Doula Roots to take notes about you, including personal information you choose to disclose to her and information regarding your labor, birth and postpartum, as well as any information regarding your child/ren. You realize that this information will be shared with the doula that is providing back up support as well. You also understand that this information may anonymously be used for the for statistical purposes, and that Sarah with Doula Roots may use this information to provide me with a summary for my own personal use.
